Glossybox June - Summer Edition!

So I have to say, I'm quite impressed with Glossybox this month. They actually gave us a dispatch date when we paid, and mine actually came the next day so they've definitely taken customers complaints and tried to improve which is a good sign!

This month there is a summer theme to the box claiming the products will make you 'beach beautiful' so here's a little look at what I got:

Glossybox Serie Exclusiv Pro Beauty Brush
 RRP full size £15.00 
Yves Rocher France Mini Mascara ultra-volume Sexy Pulp 
Full size 9ml  £16.90 (sample size 2.5ml worth £4.70)
BM Beauty Summer Warmth Bronzer
full size 4g £8.00 (sample size 1g worth £2.00)
Clean Start By Dermalogica Day/Night 3-Step Kit
full-size mini kit £12.00 
Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream Stick
full size 12g £19.00 (sample size 6g worth £9.50)
Total Box Value: £43.20 (roughly)

Glossybox Serie Exclusiv Pro Beauty Brush 
'This classic series natural goat hair blush brush gives a supersoft make-up application'
When I first saw this I thought it was going to be a really cheap, nasty brush that Glossybox had just thrown in for promotion, however I've been pleasantly surprised. As it's natural goat hair it is quite soft, it's not the softest brush in the world but for lightly applying blusher, bronzer or powder I think this could work quite well :) I can't find the make or anything about the brush but the card says visit for upcoming features so I will be keeping my eyes peeled.

Yves Rocher France Mini Mascara Ultra-Volume Sexy Pulp find me here!
'An innovative maxi-brush with generous curves for a lash plumping result. 12-hour wear'
Yves Rocher are a botanical beauty brand who harvest, manufacture and distribute all their products which is pretty impressive. The mascara brush has an hourglass shape to it which creates lots of volume and the formula is very black and coats the lashes nicely in just one application. I also love that the mascara wand is actually pink! If you follow the link above you can find it for 50% off!

BM Beauty Summer Warmth Bronzer find me here! (the photo's are blue, but it shows the true colour!)
'multi-purpose pure-mineral bronzer. Add a touch of summer warmth to your face'
This is another sample from BM Beauty, Kimberly Wyatt's mineral makeup range, they only sell one bronzer and this is in quite a shimmery golden colour, I would warn you, it looks more orange-toned on the skin than in the pot but i think used lightly this will be really flattering on all skin tones and could also be used as an eyeshadow!

Clean Start by Dermalogica Day/Night 3-Step Kit find me here!
'Cleanse, tone ad moisturise with the Day/Night 3-Step mini kit'
So there is three products in this kit. The first one is Wash Off which is a foaming wash that removes dead skin and extra oils to prevent breakouts, All Over Clear is a toner which refreshes and cools whilst preventing breakouts and Welcome Matte spf15 is a moisturiser that aims to remove oils to keep your skin matte which would be particularly good for younger skin as it tends to be more oily especially through the teenage years. I really like this product because I've been trying to get my skincare routine back up to scratch after being way to lazy and this is just what I need!

Vichy Dermablend Ultra-Corrective Foundation Cream Stick find me here!
'Vichy's expert camouflage foundation stick for minor to severe skin flaws'
The first thing that struck me when looking at this is they've included samples of all 6 shades, this is much better as your not going to get stuck with a sample in oompa loompa shade that you can't wear out of the house. The foundation is supposed to cover pigmentation, blemishes, redness and dark circles and bags so is a very full coverage foundation meaning it could look a little bit cakey towards the end of the day. Personally I don't have many issues with my skin but I will be trying this out to see if anyone notices a difference!

So that was everything that I got in my June Glossybox, I have to say my favourite product is the Dermalogica Clean Start because it's three products that work really well together! I would also that this could possibly be my favourite box yet as I like all the products I received, especially as I didn't get any shower gels or body butters!

  1. It was a lovely box, wasn't it? I got the same brush, bronzer and Dermablend card, but I got a Caudalie 10ml fragrance and a MeMeMe polish with mine. Really thrilled!
